Hello Folks,

I took my GMAT today for the second time and scored a miserable 500 .. This was my second attempt and I have really studied hard this time. My score breakup is (Q42, V18). I studied for almost 6 months and literally worked my a** off. I am very sure that i messed up in RC and CR. I did well on Quants but I know my range is 47-48.I am ready to start again and I am very determined now.

Guys I need guidance, I know my week areas in Quants, but I am not quite sure how to work with Verbal. Any input will be appreciated?

Thanks,

Hello Sarahrs,

My First score (370) was in 2009 and I barely studied that time, but this time I studied for like 6 months straight, For quants I studied from Manhattan Guides but left the topics such as Coordinate, Probability and P&C and in the real exam I got about 6-8 questions from these topics, which I totally guessed. So quants this is where I have to improve mostly and couple of more topics.

For verbal, I enrolled with E-gmat (Recording only) the course really helped me improve my SC from almost Zero to 80%+, I struggled with CR and SC very badly. CR was still average (50%+ accuracy), but I took really heavy beating in RC, I am not quite sure how to work on these areas.

Any guidance will be appreciated?

Thanks

Do lsat cr and rc questions. If you can get even decent at those, gmat will be a joke...
